In our Full Biology Curriculum, we use a variety of macromolecules worksheets. One of the macromolecule worksheets that help the students organize the information is our macromolecule graphic organizer. Get the Macromolecule Worksheet here.
In this macromolecule worksheet students identify the elements, monomer, function and complete a sketch of each macromolecule.
After completing this macromolecule worksheet students are always referring back to it. It offers them a way to organize their thoughts and have a quick reference sheet.
My students love practicing the macromolecules using the macromolecule boxing activity. Check out my post about it here!
Here is a video showing the macromolecule boxes.
Check this out too!
Students complete a fun macromolecule sidewalk chalk activity. It certainly beats having them create a poster.
Students love this activity. They just follow our macromolecule sidewalk chalk handout and are able to make excellent drawings. You can also grade it quickly and easily with our included rubric!
A Real “Gallery Walk”
In our Full Biology Curriculum, after students master the macromolecules they examine the stomach contents of a murder victim!

Do your students struggle with macromolecules?
I developed this macromolecule activity after reviewing our students scores on the state exam. Initially this was the lowest scoring area for students in my school and district (5 high schools). After implementing this activity this standard was our student’s second highest scoring area.

In this macromolecule activity, students use the macromolecule boxes and the the structure, function, building block (monomer) and pictures each each macromolecule.
In this macromolecule activity students will use the game cards to keep score and compete with each other. In addition there two other activities included to help students build their confidence with these critical bio-molecules.
Using the macromolecule activity, an area that was once a weakness for my students on the state assessment became a strength.
This unit and activity is included with our Full Biology Curriculum that you can get here.
Check out the video. See how quickly you will be able to assess your students knowledge of the macromolecules. Can you spot the errors?
If you like this activity share it with your teacher friends,
You will also love our Full Biology Curriculum. Every unit is designed by real teachers who are still practicing teachers.

One of the biggest challenges for teaching biology is helping students learn the vocabulary that is foreign to them. I took to a beach ball to assess what the students knew about each of the macromolecules. Anytime you can get a part of the beach into your classroom you need to take advantage of it. This activity works great to supplement the Biochemistry Boxing Activity that you can get free here by signing up for email updates. To do this activity you will need a beach ball and a dry erase marker. Write the names of the macromolecules or any vocabulary terms on each section of the beach ball. Toss the ball to the students and when they catch it they look to see where their right thumb lands and say the definition of the word their thumb landed on. I then have the students throw the ball back to me to prevent them from being tempted to bounce it off their classmates heads. Participation is 100% and it allow me to assess their knowledge of the vocabulary. If a students thumb lands on wild they get to pick the vocabulary term. The kids did not want to stop this activity.
